It has a nice its symmetrical design and bold appearance - very typical for Northern Spain during that time. It is an incredible Decoration for a stunning room.
Condition: It is in good antique condition. As mentioned before, one of the wings and part of the second wing were restored in former times. Also the polychrome finish, the coat of arms and the stand he is sitting on are later additions. It has a nice patina. (Please see Pictures)
